[SOLVED] Send to friend problem
I am having issues in trying to use the Send to Friend button on posts.
I went to the below post and tried to apply what is listed there but it ends up giving errors.

I think it wasn't written for 2.5.2.
Is there a version of this for 2.5.2?

What happens when you click the Send to a Friend icon? Are you getting a pop-up window?

Edited:

In YaBB 2.4 we can manage "Send topic Email to a Friend" through the Admin Center.

That seems to be an issue with Thunderbird, so I wouldn't worry about it unless you're forcing your members to use their own email program.

My personal recommendation is to give users the choice to use their own email program or to use YaBB.

What Topic Email Setting are you currently using?

I changed it to let the use decide.
I'll see if that helps the situation.
Thanks

Fantastic!

I like giving guests and members as much choice as possible. That way, they can run the show, and besides, I've always considered our forum to be theirs anyway. I'm just the guy hosting, and helping to serve their needs.
